K�ppen Classification: Tropical Monsoon Climate

Tropical monsoon climates have monthly mean temperatures above 18�C (64�F) in every month of the year and feature wet and dry seasons, as Tropical savanna climates do. Unlike tropical savanna climates however, a tropical monsoon climate's driest month sees less than 60 mm (2.36 in) of precipitation. Also a tropical monsoon climate tends to see less variance in temperatures during the course of the year than a tropical savanna climate. This climate has a driest month which nearly always occurs at or soon after the "winter" solstice for that side of the equator.

The K�ppen Climate Classification subtype for this climate is "Am". (Tropical Monsoon Climate).
